in san francisco about the existence of child pornography. they are doing a great job? san jose, whatever happened to san francisco? secondly, whatever happened about the issuance and the existence of human trafficking? the state is doing a good job, thank you, miss heras. i don't hear too much going on in san francisco. and i think that under jurisdiction of which committee i would like to see those two issues being pressed and while we are on the subject of committees holding meetings, i would like to know because i have not found out so far this morning the official reason why yesterday's two meetings were canceled and i would like to propose the idea that when the committee meetings are canceled i would like to see everyone get docked for the day because you are not working. and i would like to have a mandatory rescheduling of that meeting. let's put it this way. when i see city salaries going up, and i see all kinds of meetings being canceled for whatever official reason you want to give, including junk ets. i would also like to remind people that you get paid for showing up, you don
-speed rail project that would connect san jose to san francisco as part of the statewide high-speed rail system. it is an important project where i'm very excited that california will become the first state to actually start construction potentially this year on this. so, just to compare ideas here and where we are in this, currently the high-speed rail authority is proposing to electrify caltrain, of course, to build a temporary $250 million station at fourth and king, and with electrification it would not yet go to the transbay terminal. that requires, of course, the dtx or downtown extension. what we have looked in talking to caltrain about is to combine the electrification and downtown extension. we think it's important we get to it sooner rather than later. [speaker not understood] implemented more quickly, there could be more environmentally friendly project and we think could be delivered as a public private partnership. i always have a hard time getting that out. caltrain, of course, electrification of caltrain is a way of getting high-speed rail to the city sooner than the full
, there is only cal train maybe a little bit with bart and santa clara and san jose has not as much transit but they are far away from the center of population, only about 2 million of the 6 million in the bay area live in the santa clara county, and they seem to be having all of the growth in the eastern parts of the area which are inconvenient from a regional point of view because people are having most of the commuting there goes east to tracy or the central valley and the big commute is going east after the workday is over, i think that it is wise, i don't think that there is that much harm in the fact that these buildings will get built if they are built for office space. and actually, i read over his thing here he only said that heinz was approved, actually 171 second has been approved and that is one of the towers that would help to fund and i think that a couple of those are moving soon and 181 is getting closer to be a reality. i think that we can certainly look at this and, you know, and then see that ester brought up a good point about at least considering the possibility of sea
please. gordon row >> i've come to tall one balancing - park station. people in san jose after a thousand people a day a thousand days that's one million people dropped off into traffic. that's unacceptable that's one every 3 a and a half years. also another problem 2 hundred people try to cross geneva avenue everyday. the cars leon on both sides of the street 2 thousand people r. and someone's going to get killed. it's a low priority. in the meantime, you're studying 70 millions and 60 millions for student traffic. it might cost 3 hundred thousands to serve traffic across the avenue. in the meantime someone's going to get killed there. i want you to reexam your priority. people have just as right as much to safety >> david. >> david again two items on general public comment. regarding shelters i have spoken about the new shelters and those locations don't have muni signs. again, i would ask if i could follow-up what the new contradiction is for the new shelters and including high volume park station on 19th and the other street don't have muni shelters. and i understand ther
in the latino communities and barrios of los angeles, san jose, and other cities to build chapters of the cso or community service organizations, civil rights and civil improvement groups in california and arizona. the founding leaders of the cv so included members of the steel workers, clothing workers, meat cutters and other unions. and they formed the core of cso's early leadership who built a powerful coalition that included the naacp, the japanese american citizens league, the catholic church and the jewish community together as they fought for fair housing, employment, and working conditions. one of the biggest victories came in the wake of a severe beating of seven men. five of them latinos by the los angeles police department on christmas day 1951 known as bloody christmas, leaving the victims with broken bones and ruptured organs, but pressure from the cso forced the l.a.p.d., which routinely harassed and abused african americans and hi cannot owes and latinos, they documented complaints and keeping up public pressure in the media. * they eventually resulted in the unprecedented indi
the warriors but consents to oakland and san jose and when paf rete and streisand and this is the problem and if we had an arena decent for presentation san francisco would be the first site but that doesn't mean this has to be the only site in san francisco but it's the best site because it satisfies so many things being so close to accessibility from cal train, from bart, from muni, from a lot of different public transportation and also very walkable. it also impresses me after giant games the number of people on the street walking up to market street or into the heart of san francisco and everyone had horror stories about how bad it would be and i don't think i ever had a problem coming or going to a giant games whether i walked or drive or public transportation. i usually don't drive and if i do i park a wayings away and i think this makes sense. somebody brought up the question about maritime uses and as was pointed out in the presentation there is the idea of kayak access and some ferry terminal or some terminal is planned as part of the project. fishing will be available. there
sorts of things in the rooms like is happening in san jose and people are sick, so we don't come here that often because i tell you every fight is uphill fight. you tell the truth. you try to give your documentation. you ask for the right type of documentation and you don't get it. please do not do this to our children. please do not do this to the children because the children can't defend themselves. thank you very much. >> good afternoon. my name is shirley smith. i am here with dr. jackson. i have a grand child that lives in that community and i am already noticing something is wrong with him and you can tell the difference from when he was born and came home to that community. it's toxic. i don't have that great of a job but i'm trying to get him out of that community and to build a so-called wellness center there. it's traditional. you have gas stations. you have -- just too much toxins around there. like we said we're not against the people who want this wellness center. we want it as well but we want it in a healthy environment as all other centers are in a health
the 49ers are going bye bye to san jose so i think it's incumbent upon us to help bring this warriors to this very special site and maintain our reputation as a world class city that knows how. thank you. >> thank you. (calling speakers). >> hi dale rhine hart. the one thing i wanted to mention today is the dynamic dialogue going on is their story is continually changing. whenever something comes up it moves in another direction. we don't hear the same thing each time. to jeffrey's point this is the same dog and pony show and i am tired much sitting through it today. if the embarcadero deserves a visual interest the bay is spectacular and you pay for views and that's the best one going. transportation is a issue. tell me where you guys live and we have an arena built three blocks from you. this is for more games and you have spending a billion dollars to do because you need something to hold it. something else in the city can hold the smaller events so we're looking at another design today. as jeffrey mentioned what happened here? who got to him? who does he owe to somebody? t

[ applause ] >> good afternoon. welcome to the san francisco board of supervisors land use and economic development committee. my name is scott wiener. i'm the chair of the committee. to my right is supervisor jane kim, the committee vice-chair and to my left is supervisor david chiu. sfgtv staff who are recording today's meeting are jessie larson and nona markonian. thank you to sfgtv. ms. miller, are are there any announcements? >> please make sure cell phones and electronic devices are. completed cards [speaker not understood]. items acted upon today will be on the march 19th board of supervisors agenda unless otherwise stated. >> thank you. madam clerk, will you please call item number 1? >> item number 1 is an ordinance approving exceptions to requirements of the seismic safety loan program under the administrative code and the sslp program regulations, regarding a $2,379,464 loan for an existing affordable housing proj
, executive director of apa family support services. i'm also on the faculty of san jose state in health policy organization and administration. you've just heard our board president speak about the impact to our clients and cpmc has been a wonderful partner. and i want to say that we're looking forward to kind of the impact on community health overall. we're involved with prevention, of child abuse and neglect, and they have been [speaker not understood] source so we can address those particular need in our low-income and immigrant family. in the past i've mentioned the multiplier effect of hospitals and new hospitals and i think you all under what this means to our economy, to our work force, and it will continue to build. and now instead -- and this is because of the hard work of deliberation of all the community and stakeholders and your leadership as our elected official, now instead of just one large gem, i think we all have two gems that promises to raise and revitalize yet another neighborhood. and i think that recognition of the changing demographics is going to be so valuable t
the aids memorial workshop was. that as it turns out was one of the first movie theaters in san francisco, the jose theater built in 1910. the building itself, i think relative to your question, is fairly indistinguished. it's a generic building of its time, but the social aspect of, you know, the importance of the aids crisis and san francisco's response to it through the quilt i think is incredibly significant to, to memorialize. now, of course, that building right now is katz restaurant. there is very little reference on the interior to the workshop and what was done there. the owner has been great. he displays quilt panels in the foyer of the restaurant at all times. but i do think we need some kind of program to identify on the building because no one would know the building, per se. but i do think we need to identify these places of culture and social interaction. so, i know there's been a lot of work on buildings in the gay community, the historical buildings of the gay community [speaker not understood] and things like that. >> thank you very much. >>> thank you. >> supervisor bre
